Can you speed, run stop signs or drive drunk? No, and if a police officer catches you, you will pay a price for flaunting the law.

Can you park for more than two hours downtown, despite an ordinance against that? Are illegal turns allowed, or at least not strongly prohibited? According to what was said at Monday night’s Powell City Council meeting, yes.

Charlie Hardy isn’t a typical candidate.

Hardy, a Democrat seeking his party’s nomination for the Senate seat now held by Sen. Mike Enzi, a three-term Republican, stopped in Powell Tuesday. He did a meet-and-greet event at the Park County Fairgrounds and came to the Powell Tribune office for an extended interview.

Winter refuses to loosen icy grip on area as March approaches  

Saturday is March 1, the first day of what is termed meteorological spring, which divides the seasons into four three-month blocks.

Joann Bentz plans to live to be 100, and she thinks having chickens at her home can help her reach that goal.

The Powell City Council didn’t chicken out when it came to allowing chickens in the city limits.

Thumbs up to the transformation of the old Southside Elementary School into the new Trinity Bible Church. The church purchased the facility last summer, and we’re pleased to see it take on new life and a new look. For more than 50 years, thousands of Powell residents attended school in the building or worked there.
